Asian Eyelid Surgery
Asian eyelids are often lacking the crease in the upper eyelid. This can make it difficult to appear alert and, in some cases, can age the face. Both men and women requesting Asian eyelid surgery prefer the slight lift of the eyelid that reveals the lash line. For those who wear makeup, it opens up numerous opportunities for new looks with eyeshadow and eyeliner. Asian eyelid surgery requires exceptional skill and knowledge of the ocular region. Dr. Azouz is a fellowship trained, board certified plastic surgeon with decades of experience and training in eye & brow surgery.
What is Asian Eyelid Surgery?
Asian eyelid surgery, or “double eyelid” surgery, results in extra eyelid space by creating an eyelid crease. The recontoured eyes appear wider and almond-shaped. A consultation with Dr. Azouz will determine the appropriate height from your lash line to the new crease, based on your desired outcome and preexisting eye characteristics. Typically, candidates for Asian eyelid surgery have one or more of the following:
- Dissatisfaction with the shape of the eye
- Draping eyelid that makes the eyes appear partly closed
- Puffy eyes/excess fatty tissue
- Inward-folding eyelids, causing lashes to brush the cornea
- Desire for easier makeup application
- Looking to restore a more youthful appearance
A fine incision is made where the new eyelid crease will be, and excess skin and fat are removed if necessary. Sutures are used to close the incision. Depending on the length of the incision, it may be visible but is generally not noticeable.
Eyelid Surgery and Brow Lift
For the most comprehensive Asian eyelid surgery, combining it with a brow lift offers the most youthful, wide-awake results while maintaining a natural appearance. Through the natural aging process, your forehead muscles relax, causing the skin to sag onto your eyebrows. This downward pressure can make your lids appear heavy or droopy and create horizontal lines across your forehead. By lifting the brow, it eliminates the wrinkles and repositions the eyebrows slightly higher up. When completed at the same time, the two procedures provide superior results due to the complete upper face rejuvenation.
